Crystal Dreams - Tea Drones
Tea Drones is a foray into the hypnotic world of the drone. A world where melody is redundant and texture is key. If sound could have a colour the names of these excursions are what I imagine it might be like.
The album came to me in middle of 2013 whilst I was working at a call center in Canberra, Australia. During my morning and afternoon tea breaks I was often found staring at my iPhone working furiously in NanoStudio. Escaping the corporate world. Experimenting. Coming to grips with the concept of making music with just a touch screen.
The original sketches stayed untouched for a further two years until I regained the love I needed to bring them into the wider world. I imported all of the NanoStudio rendered audio into Ableton and gave them the warmth and shine I felt they deserved.
Special thanks to Sarah for tolerating my absences during the polishing process and to John Tocher for his support.
